Here's a full reveal of my 2nd blog post up at Flourish With a Bling, which went up 5 days ago HERE. I had fun with this one! (just IN LOVE with my chevron mask from The Crafter’s Workshop). I used a Jasmine Puffy Flourish in white, available HERE.
I went for a “white on white” look, which I am really loving at the moment. I cut the flourish into 2 parts & used the smaller part on the other side of my photo. This is a good trick to remember as it makes the flourish look a lot longer & bigger than it really is (as it looks like the photograph is placed on top of it).
I started this layout by choosing my grey cardstock, cutting it down & mounting it on another sheet so I had a solid border all around the edge. This gives a nice finishing touch as it makes it look like the layout is framed.
I also used part of a Chloe Flourish in Pearl, that I had left over from a previous project, you can buy that HERE. More often than not I prefer to cut up my flourishes as that just makes them more versatile for me. I also added some random ‘confetti style’ adhesive pearls available HERE.
Despite the pretty nature of the layout the story is actually quite funny so of course I had to add some journaling to remember the occasion! My patterned papers & fussy-cut flowers come from the new Maggie Holmes Collection for Crate Paper.
Here you can see all 3 FWAB supplies in action! Both flourishes & the loose pearls too – yum!! I began the composition of this page by tearing the chevron paper roughly where I wanted my photograph to be framed, then inking up the edges in pink. I’ve already scraplifted this page for another layout as I really liked how it turned out!
I got this FWAB idea from my friend Evgenia’s blog HERE as she did something similar recently (where she curled the edges of her page then put microbeads underneath). I only had these seed beads so they’re a little bigger but I still ♥ the effect! I curled my paper over a pencil then taped it in place (helps to have a double-sided paper with a pretty underside…)
